How many pages can I print per cartridge using an HP Laser printer?

Today, I receive a questions in the quora.com which ask How many pages can I print per cartridge using an HP Laser printer? I think this is a topic worth sharing with you.

As a long-term laser printer user, you will know that different printers use different toner cartridges, so the page yield of different toner cartridges will naturally be different. But not all printer users understand this point, especially those who have just touched the laser printer, may think that the toner cartridge used by the printer has a fixed amount of printing. Today, V4ink is here to discuss this topic with you.

Is the page yield of toner cartridge the same?

Obviously no! Different toner cartridge have different page yield, even they are both compatible with the same printer equipment, but the page yield of them may have some difference.
For example, the HP CF410A and CF410X, which compatible with the same printer equipment but have different page yield.

HP CF410A(K), which page yield is 2,300 pages per cartridge(Showing on the following picture).

HP CF410X(K), which page yield is 6,500 pages per cartridge(Showing on the following picture). The page yield of the CF410X is double of the CF410A.

Because the HP CF410A is low yield which suitable for users who with small print volumes and the HP CF410X is high yield which suitable for users who with high print volumes. That’s why they have such difference.

Will the number of pages I actually print be the same as the pages yield display on the web page?

Not always! The page yield on the web page is only a reference value. How many pages you actually print depends on how much coverage you print. The page yield displayed on the web page is the national standard of 5% coverage (Letter/A4).

If your average print coverage per page exceeds the 5% coverage standard, the actual number of pages you print will be lower than the page yield displayed on the web page. If your average print coverage per page is less than the 5% coverage standard, then the actual number of pages you print may be higher than the page yield displayed on the web page.

How to solve the problems when printers fail to print②

What if the printer can’t print if the disk space is below 10MB. If the available hard disk space is less than 10MB (generally referred to as C disk), more space must be released to complete the printing task. At this point, click the Disk Cleanup button, and then in the File to Delete list box, select the file type to delete, and click the OK button.

What if local printer port settings are incorrect, causing printer to not print.

The steps are as follows:

  1. in the printer window, right-click the printer icon, and then click properties.
  2. Click the Details tab and in the Print to the Port below box, make sure that the printer is set to the appropriate port. The most commonly used ports are set to “LPT1” and the printer uses the USB port.

Incorrect output of program generated result in not printing.

To determine whether the output generated by the program is correct, it can be verified by printing documents through other programs. We create a new notebook file, type a few lines of text, and then click the Print command in the File menu. If you can print the test document, it is the original program you used for printing that has problems, please reinstall the program.

Printer driver damage causes printer not to print.

Sometimes, printer drivers may be corrupted, causing errors that cannot be printed. We can reinstall the appropriate driver and print it again.

How to Solve The Problems When Printers Fail to Print①

Printers can’t print because they are offline. On most printers, beside the OnLine button, there is a small light indicating the online status. Normally, the online indicator should be in a constant state. If the indicator is not light or flicker, it is abnormal. Please check whether the printer power supply is on, whether the printer power switch is on, whether the printer cable is connected correctly, etc.

How to set the printer to the default status.

The steps are as follows:

  1. Click the Windows Start menu, point to Settings, click Printer, and open the Printer window.
  2. right-click the printer icon, the system pops up the quick menu, and click “set as the default value”.

If the Printer window does not have the printer currently in use, double-click the Add Printer icon and install the printer according to the prompt.

What if the printer is in a pause print state, resulting in failure to print. The method is: in the Printer window, right-click on the printer icon in use, and then click to clear the check mark “” before the “pause printing” option.

What does the 5% Page Coverage Actual Means?

As a seller, one of the most common questions of the customer is that “why your toner cartridge printing volume is not up to the page yield shown on your web page?” Many people may not know that the number of printed pages of toner cartridges depends on the amount of coverage they print. Some people don’t realize that there is a prerequisite for the number of printed pages on our pages – that is 5% page coverage. Many people don’t know what the “5% page coverage”. They only think that the products they purchase from my website do not meet the standards the web page display.

As a seller, it makes me really worried, but it is difficult to explain to customers. So I write this article to let the all of you in need read, can save time to explain over and over again, can make a cup of coffee, enjoy life.

What does the printer’s “5% page coverage” mean?
5% page coverage is the coverage of international standard printed test pages, that is, an A4 paper is divided into 20 parts on average, one of which is covered with 5% coverage. Just like the following picture:

More specifically, “Coverage” refers to the percentage of the area covered by ink relative to the area of the whole sheet of paper when printing. Therefore, 5% page coverage refers to the area covered by ink after printing, but does not mean how many words or pictures can be printed. At present, the standard of 5% page coverage (black) and 15% coverage (red/yellow/blue) are widely used in the industry as the preconditions for printing sheets of black and color cartridges, respectively.

Let’s look at the following example:

The above picture shows that what is the 5% page coverage. It is usually determined by the density, size, height and font of your input text. If you add charts, it will usually exceeds 5% page coverage.

Besides, if you use the hp 410a toner cartridges print only black and white Word documents and emails, you are more likely to be close to the 2,300 page than other people who use the same cartridge but print a large number of color documents (including images or shadow blocks) every day.

So, there is no way to ensure that we print at 5% coverage per page, which may lead to the number of pages that we end up printing deviating from the standard number displayed on the web page. So if your tone cartridge doesn’t reach the number you expect to print, it’s not necessarily a problem with the toner cartridge. It may also be that you print more than 5% coverage per page. If you print a large number of pictures and charts over a long period of time, the number of pages you print may still be less than half the standard. If you recognize this point, you will not think this is a big problem. If you want to save more money on toner cartridges, I suggest you buy high quality compatible toner cartridges, you can save 1/3 of the money compare to the original.

Finally, I hope you can apply what you have learned and share it with your friends so that more people can benefit from it.

Tips for Thanksgiving Shopping and Black Friday Shopping Strategy 2018

The Halloween sale has just passed, I believe you must have harvested a lot. In November, a big shopping season after Thanksgiving day – “Black Friday” is also about to start. So in the this November shopping season, what should we pay attention to when shopping? Let V4ink bring you the 2018 Black Friday shopping strategy.

Online shopping or offline store purchase?
First of all, online shopping. Actually, Thanksgiving promotion has already started since early November. If you have registered members on some official websites or shopping malls, the activity content will be sent to you by email. Even if there are no registered members, don’t worry. Every website activity can be directly inquired, as long as you pay attention to it frequently.
Compared with the offline stores, online shopping must be more convenient. When shopping, prices can also be compared. The most important thing is that online order is more convenient than offline stores purchase. But according to past experience, the discount rate of offline store may be higher than that of online shopping, so in the early morning of Black Friday, many consumers queued up to rush into stores.
About offline stores rush to buy, we must make adequate preparations, advance the official website to inquire about the price. If the price difference is not very large, or the purchase is not much, it is not recommended to purchase on the offline store. On the night of Black Friday, many people even queued up outside the store with tents in order to grab their favorite goods for the first time. After Black Friday, many stores will sort out the goods that have not been snapped up, and then put them in the online shopping activities on Monday to continue to promote, so it is not necessary to rush to buy.

Identify what you need to buy.
Never buy simply because it is cheap, and figure out what you need to buy. If it is purchasing household goods for the family, then we must make a good budget, list the things we need to buy, don’t go to the mall to see what is cheap to buy. Although most businessmen can return their goods, it is really unnecessary to make another trip. Especially many shopping malls are relatively remote. It is really impossible to catch up with the time and fuel cost for returning goods.
Before preparing for Black Friday to clean up goods, it is recommended to check the activities of the nearby shopping malls first. Assuming it’s something you’ve wanted for a long time, you’ll have to check the previous price for comparison with Black Friday’s price.

Will Black Friday be more favorable on that day?
Not entirely, many electrical appliances are worth to purchase on Black Friday, but some products, such as official supplies, do not have to rush to buy on the same day. Many stores have already launched quite attractive discounts and gift bags before Black Friday. For example, V4ink have launching a pre-Black Friday Sale on November 8, you can save $10 when you order over $60 on all ink and toner cartridges by using the coupon code: V4PREB5. Also, you can get special discount for specified product, e.g HP 410X which have 30% OFF for 4 color set. It’s the cheapest price throughout the year.
Therefore, suggestions do not have to wait until Black Friday, if you find that the desired product has a suitable price, then you must start as soon as possible, hot products must start quickly, minute out of stock rhythm, and businessmen will never launch the same preferential activities twice during Thanksgiving.
Of course, black Friday discounts should also be categorized. If it is electronic products, household products or infant goods, it is indeed the key target of the Black Friday.
Generally speaking, the department stores on the Black Friday promoted almost every aspect of life. But in fact, besides Black Friday, there are promotions on many holidays in the United States. For example, Cyber Monday is also a good choice if you still haven’t bought enough.

How to distinguish a toner cartridge is good or bad?

Nowadays, with the increasing reform of laser printing technology, the price of expensive laser printers has gradually become cheaper and cheaper. Because laser printers do not have a series of shortcomings such as easy plugging and slow printing speed of inkjet printers, more and more families and units adopt laser printers. Canon, HP and Lenovo have launched desktop laser printers, which further enhance the popularity of laser printers.

When it comes to laser printers, it is essential to mention the key consumables of laser printers – toner cartridges. As we all know, compared with inkjet printer cartridge and continuous supply, the development ability of laser printer comes entirely from toner cartridges. It can be said that the quality of the toner cartridge directly restricts the printing effect. Therefore, buying a high-quality toner cartridge for your printer not only plays an important role in protecting the printer and prolonging the printer’s life, but also ensures the accurate development and clarity of printed documents.

So how can it be regarded as a good toner cartridge? What qualifications should a qualified toner cartridge meet?

Compared with the high “price” of the original consumables, the general consumables launched by many domestic manufacturers appear to be cheaper. It only needs less than one fifth of the cost of original consumables, but it can achieve printing effect no less than that of original consumables. Who would refuse this cheap and good thing?

However, because of the low threshold of printing consumables industry, the laser consumables products on the market are also mixed. Even if it’s a general consumable for the same printer, the cheap toner cartridge on the Internet costs less than $10, even hundreds of over $300. Why is the price so different for the same printer? How to distinguish the good and bad of toner cartridge when choosing and purchasing?

Good cartridge VS bad cartridge
1. Does the toner cartridge use high-quality plastic part.
Generally speaking, quality toner cartridge mostly chooses all new materials, each plastic part is purchased from the regular channel, which ensures environmental protection and quality. So the price is naturally high. V4ink compatible toner cartridge(e.g hp 305a) which use high-quality plastic part and through the professional technology, the parts inside the toner cartridge are combined together, and the integrated structure can effectively avoid the leakage of toner.
It can be said that high quality cartridge won’t be deformed because of high temperature deformation and good combination with machine. However, most of the inferior rubber parts are made of recycled materials or inferior raw materials, which are fragile, inelastic and sometimes noisy, seriously affecting the service life of printers.

2. Does the manufacturer have chip development capability.
Many people do not know why compatible consumables can be identified by original printers. In fact, the secret lies in the small IC chip compatible with consumables. Good chips, because of their precise machine recognition and high error correction rate, basically print experience will not be much different from the original consumables. And poor quality chips can cause a lot of trouble, not only printer frequent error, but also may cause a variety of printing problems. Therefore, the chip is also an important difference between big manufacturers and small manufacturers.

3. The quality of drum core is good or bad.
The drum core of toner cartridge is the most important photosensitive part of toner cartridge. High quality toner cartridge can bring good printing effect, especially at the printing level. However, the low-quality toner cartridge has a short life because of its low-cost drum core. Maybe you don’t realize the difference when you start printing, but after hundreds of pages of printing, it often happens that there are deep and shallow prints, and the sharpness of the prints decreases seriously. The high-quality toner cartridge will not have this problem at all, only when the carbon powder is nearly exhausted will the printing blackness decrease.

4. Carbon powder used in drum core
High quality carbon powder particles are uniform, low melting point and firm fixation. Generally speaking, high-quality toner cartridge are made of carbon powder from imported raw materials, which can ensure the stability and clarity of printing. More importantly, they are environmentally friendly and healthy, and contain no harmful substances except carbon black. The biggest problem of inferior carbon powder is that its composition is complex and contains harmful ingredients to a certain extent. Long-term use will inevitably have an impact on health.
